India has a wide variety of cuisines and Indians love to experiment all kinds of food. Though dosa is a staple breakfast in the southern states, even the North Indians love to feast on it. The problem is many people do not have the expertise to make thin crisp dosas and they end up eating at some restaurant.
Kent came up with a unique dosa maker, which not only helps in making thin dosas but also omelettes, crepes and chillas. Here are some mouth-watering chilla recipes that you can make by using this kitchen appliance from Kent.
1. Besan Chilla: This is a perfect breakfast dish that goes well with green chutney. In a mixing bowl, take a cup of besan or gram flour. Add a pinch of turmeric, and salt to taste. Add water and whisk it to form a smooth batter. Now add some finely chopped onions, tomatoes, green chillies and fresh coriander leaves. Pour the batter into the dipping bowl that comes along with Kent dosa maker and make chilla following the instructions that are given in the manual booklet.
2. Pesarattu: This is one of the most popular breakfast recipes popular in Andhra Pradesh. Soak split green gram for few hours, drain the water and grind it along with some green chilli, ginger, garlic, onion, asafoetida, and salt to form a smooth batter. Add water to get the right consistency. Use the dosa maker to get the perfect Pesarattu, which you can relish with coconut chutney.
3. Moong Dal Chilla with Paneer Filling: Soak yellow moong dal for few hours or overnight and in the morning, drain it. Now add green chillies, a piece of ginger, salt and asafoetida to it and grind all these together. Take it out and add water if required to get dosa-like consistency and keep aside. In another bowl, crumble some paneer and add to it some chat masala. Also, keep some green coriander chutney ready. Make chilla using the Kent dosa maker and spread some green chutney over the chilla. Now sprinkle a table spoon full of paneer mixture and fold the chilla over to a half moon shape and it’s ready to eat.
4. Besan and Methi Chilla: This nutritious breakfast recipe is perfect for diabetics as both methi and besan are recommended for them. To make this, whisk besan with water in a bowl. Add to it finely chopped onions, ajwain, salt, green chillies and a cup of chopped methi leaves.
